    The camera took them very dark so I had to crank up the brightness on them. Thats why they dont look very good. Some of the stuff you see is getting cut off and other stuff is being added on. The rear bumper and armor is going on this week and the next. Specs are:

    6" lift, 1" Body Lift, 39.5 Swampers on 15x10 rims with 4.5" of backspacing.

    Two rear bars are going to come off of the cage and go all the way to the rear bumper that will incorporate side armor and a small rear stinger type of thing. The front side armor is also going to get reinforced to the frame. We were going to do a windsheild hoop but everyone we mocked up looked strange.

    I used to run nothing but mud. I got tired of washing it all the time and replacing wheel bearing and fluids constantly. I'm sure I will still do mud now and then though.

    I wont be back to it for a few weeks but I can then. There isnt too much too it. The pins are on the high side of the radiator support. I was able to get the bolts on the bottom because the ends are cut off. The hood moved back a few inches so I was able to put the back pins on top of the cowl. I'm not to happy with how the hood turned out. I started cutting and found bondo and it went down from there. I might try again with another hood maybe fiberglass. I skinned this one out so I'm not sure how it will do with wobbling and making noise. I'll just have to play it by ear.
